Asian inspired Roasted Cauliflower

As long as I can remember cauliflower was basically the most boring ingredient out there. It was either boiled or smothered in cheese and maybe sometimes the most adventurous ones out there would eat it raw with some dip. 

But cauliflower has had a transformation. You can eat it in so many ways that I literally can't keep up. 

One of my favourite new cauliflower re-invention is roasted. I wish someone would have thought of this when I was a kid I have never really been into eating meat and this would have been an amazing replacement. 

The recipe below is for an Asian inspired roasted cauliflower I would pair it with some fresh salads and maybe oven baked aubergines. 


3 TBS Sesame oil
2 TBS soy sauce
3 Spring onions
2 Birdseye chilies (or more if you like it spicy) 
1/2 Lemon
2 Cloves garlic
2 TBS peanut butter
1 TBS sesame seeds
Handful of peanuts 


1 Peel off the cauliflower leaves 

2 In a bowl mix all of the ingredients excluding the Peanuts, sesame seeds, and spring onions. 

3 Place the cauliflower in an oven safe roasting dish with a lead. 

4 Pour the mixture on the cauliflower and rub in a little

5 Pour in half a cup of water (careful to make sure it goes to the bottom of the dish and not the cauliflower) 

6 Bake at 160° for 1 hour. 

7 Uncover and bake for a further 15 mins. 

8 sprinkle on the sesame seeds, peanuts, and spring onions. 


of course, this can be done in many ways… what would be your favourite?
